International Friends & Family Program



Moving across the world to study at an American university as an international student can be daunting, especially being so far from family. The International Friends and Family Program at SVSU was formed to ease the transition for our new international students. New international students are matched with community members, domestic students, or SVSU employees and then participate in a variety of activities together.

The goals of the program are to:

* promote global awareness

* foster appreciation of different cultures, languages and countries

* provide support for international students

* have fun!

* facilitate positive interactions between employees and international students

All new international students are encouraged to sign up as well as any community members of the Great Lakes Bay Region, SVSU employees, or SVSU domestic students.
